“A wonderful place to recharge your batteries!!”

We arrived to a wonderfully warm, gracious and attentive hostess, Lyn, who met us at our car before we had even got out ... how lovely after a long days driving!! As we were unpacking she kindly brought over some freshly baked brownies which were "to die for"!! The setting was a wisteria laden studio cottage out the back of a historic older house just on the outskirts of town so a very handy location. You would think it wouldn't be very private but Lyn was very intuitive to our needs and allowed us just the right amount of space we needed to "chill" yet was still available if we needed anything. At night she brought over some fresh bread rolls which was very kind as she knew we would be staying in for the night and cooking ourselves a meal from the abundant supply of fresh produce stocked in the kitchen. A variety of freshly picked herbs were in a jar of water to add to our meal if we wanted and the invitation to pick rocket or anything else we desired from her beautifully kept vegetable garden or fruit trees. Oscar the house cat also visited us regularly for a smooch and made us feel very special. Double doors opened from the studio accommodation onto a serene garden setting with a fountain of happy, singing frogs. It was so restful we didn't want to leave .... we could have just sat on the sunny verandah with our cuppas and books soaking it all up for days!! The accommodation was very comfortable, with modern decor and just a touch of Bellingen thrown in, There was a good selection of DVD's, magazines and games available in the cottage. If you're in need of a place to recharge your batteries, I highly recommend Lyn's Wisteria Cottage, Bellingen.

Very well set up accommodation in a studio behind a beautiful old house on Bellingen's "Nob's Hill" - close (but not too close) to the town centre. Fresh brownies on arrival and everything you could need is provided by the thoughtful and friendly owner.

We had a fabulous two nights at Wisteria Cottage. We cooked at the cottage both nights as it seemed a shame not to make use of the great ambiance both inside and outside the cottage. We have traveled extensively over the past 30 years and this is one of the best accommodations of this type we have ever stayed in.

“Wisteria Retreat!”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We loved so much about Wisteria Cottage. We were welcomed with chocolate brownies and a big smile. the cottage is just gorgeous, the gardens luscious and the location so handy to town. The kitchen was very well appointed and we really appreciated their eye for details...those little touches make it a special place, not just a nice place. Thanks Jeff and Lyn, we look forward to our next visit.

“A beautiful and relaxing place to stay”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

The photos don't do justice to Wisteria Cottage. It is a very beautiful and serene home. Every detail has been well thought out and lovingly decorated. The bedroom/living room is very comfortable for 2 people. The kitchen is quite small, it would be a squeeze for 2 people to be in it together, but it is amazingly well equipped, we didn't lack for anything. The grounds are just stunning, very well maintained. At sundown you can watch the migration of the local bat colony as they head out at night for food. Amazing to seee these thousands of bats flying over your head! The hospitality of Lyn and Jeff is outstanding, they do absolutely everything possible to make your stay enjoyable.

“Wonderful Wisteria Cottage”
Reviewed 14 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

people found this review helpful

Normally, I am not keen on B&Bs, but our stay at Wisteria Cottage for two nights was delightfully memorable. Bellingen is a lovely town on the Bellinger
River in an absolutely idyllic valley about 10 minutes off the Pacific H'way, 27ks south of Coffs Harbour. The hostess Lyn, puts her heart and soul into providing a wonderful olde worlde accommodation, comprising a one-bedroom, free-standing cottage festooned with wisteria and with modern and fastidiously clean and stylish amenities, including a fully equipped kitchen and lounge with quality TV and DVD player (with DVDs). It is located within a short walk of the High Street and its shops and cafes. However, as it is just one cottage and well priced, a bit of planning is advised as it does attract regulars. It is a great base to explore this wonderful area of NSW, from the high country of Dorrigo to the open and deserted North Head Beach to the river villages of Mylestom and Urunga, where the Bellinger River meets the sea.
